What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

The best way to treat a patient is to consider him/her as part of my family. Compassion and support are my principal rules. I also believe that a meticulous patient care and team-based approach are the key elements in achieving a personalized plan of care for optimal patient outcomes.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I wanted to influence people life in a positive way. I believe a doctor has the ability to become a resource of wellness for patients, not only offering certain treatment either medical of surgical for different disease processes but also to become that person you can trust to help you to overcome a problem and always be on your side.
